  through darkness

a shadow haunts the corner of your eye
the dark clouds of memory fly
star-pricks pierce the arc of evening
as the mortal heart quakes
and grim moments slip endless by
to the cold hours before dawn breaks

hold your torch high against the pall
as the spectral vortex consumes all
with its rising tide of grief
hope and purpose are lost from sight
and none can offer relief
from the darkness and ignominy of night

yet then when dawn is broken
the words of fear remain unspoken
the washes of umber and smoke recede
until you stand alone to make your way
stark, abandoned, yet freed
small and unguarded, to face the day
